on contrary id say you image holds up more then enough.
Great shot, a very interesting image. And i just love the green color.
What camera/lens was used ?
The camera is a Pentax ist DS with the standard 18-55mm sigma len that comes with it.
( f/13, 1/60sec ISO200 , 50mm)
P.S. I love the droplets.
Hey Paul, absolutely stunning images! The colour and sharpness are simply amazing, and I love the drops of dew on the petals. Only critique I could offer is to watch the DOF on some of them, especially #1 and to a lesser extent #2. #3 is spot on.
Nice shot too, binglefish! What an interesting looking fern! I like the composition too...
Absolutely incredible shots Paul. You too binglefish. I certainly see where Irma is coming from on the droplet factor but that sure doesn't take away too much of the fact that these are amazing images.
Just one thing, smaller images. Viewers will not like scrolling to see the images. 600x800 is usually a good viewing size but please try not to go beyond 1024x768. Not only do large images make it more difficult to view for people with 17" & 15" monitors but images that large are more likely to be stolen for prints.
Wonderful depth of field. Sometimes the backgrounds do contain distractions. Some cropping and recomposition of the central image might help to reduce the distractions. I also think there was too much water in most of them.
For those interested.

By the way, Paul, I've been meaning to ask - do you do the framing and type all the info at the bottom of the photo manually? Or use some sort of automated action?
